Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel announced

August 3, 2012

Two’s a party, and three is apparently not a crowd. Today EA has confirmed a third entry in the co-op shooter series Army of Two, this time titled Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel.

Announced via press release, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel will see the brutal duo heading to Mexico as ‘Alpha’ and ‘Bravo’, dropped in by their PMC group in order to clean up a drug war conflict between various gangs. And by ‘clean up’ we mean ‘shoot the hell out of everyone’.

Now headed by a team at Visceral Games (Dead Space) and powered by DICE’s engine Frostbite 2, The Devil’s Cartel will retain the same action heavy co-op focus as the past two titles, both as split-screen and online. Meanwhile customisation will be dialled to eleven, allowing a greater depth to both weapon and mask personalisation.

The Devil’s Cartel is aiming for launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 around March 2013. It should be noted that the press release, seen here on NeoGAF, has been pulled from its original source. We’re betting someone pulled the trigger early (pun intended), and The Devil’s Cartel was supposed to be revealed at EA’s summer showcase later today.

UPDATE: Looks like Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is Game Informer’s next cover story. Check out the developer video below.
